Here are the official documents showing Jon Jones' drug test failure for cocaine metabolites via the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Many have wondered about the exact details of UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones' out of competition drug tests from the Nevada State Athletic Commission. MMA Fighting was able to obtain the documents via a public records request, which are shown below. They show the results of two tests from December 4th. The reason there were two was because the first urine sample was deemed watery. They both show Jones testing positive for benzoylecgonine. They also show some interesting results in terms of his testosterone to epitestosterone ratio.

The T/E ratio is abnormally low in both tests. I won't speculate as to the reasoning on that, frankly because I don't know enough about it. According to the commission, Jones was re-tested on December 18th and passed those tests in terms of PEDs. It is unclear the December 18th sample was screened for cocaine at this point. He also submitted a urine sample before the January 3rd fight with Daniel Cormier at UFC 182, and a urine and blood sample after the fight. The results of those tests aren't known as of yet.

Jones has not been punished by the commission, who said that the actual screening for cocaine wasn't requested by the commission and it was due to an "administrative oversight". Jones voluntarily entered rehab after the rest results were made public.
